    Presentation Transcript
    1. Gender inequality and Education.

    2. Introduction Within this short presentation I shall relate to gender inequality and how this is linked to education and why it is seen as an inequality within education.

    3. Gender inequality Women and men are unequal in every conceivable way in endless circumstances, both immediate and enduring, by both objective criteria and subjective experience.  So, what counts as gender inequality? Stereotypical saying; “Boys are from Mars and Girls are from Venus”

    4. Where do you find gender inequality in primary and secondary education? • Some differences in courses taking patterns by the end of high school, • Some differences in portrayal of men/women in curricular materials, • Micro levels in interactional levels in classrooms.

    5. Barrie Thorne. 1993. • “Boys and girls together …but mostly apart” (in Gender Play: Girls and Boys in School)

    6. Sadker and Sadker 1994 • Boys are called on more than girls, • Boys are given more and different feedback than girls • Boys are allowed more leniency for mild classroom behaviour than girls

    7. Where do we find gender inequality at the university level? • Educational achievement • Educational attachment • Payoffs to education • Gender segregation of college majors

    8. Example;

    9. Gender inequality and Education Statistics show; • UK: 2001, 56.5% of girls achieved five or more GCSE or equivalent pass, compared to 45.7% of boys. • On average 51% of all bachelor’s degrees are earned by female students. • 1/3 of all women (or men) would have to • change college majors for there to be no • Gender segregation 1/3 of all women (or men) would have to change college majors for there to be no gender segregation. • Gender differences in college majors alone explains 12% of the gender gap in wages.

    10. Conclusion To conclude my presentation gender inequality can impact education in many forms as statistics have shown. By Danielle Johnson
